Is My THCO Distillate Safe? Understanding this Hemp-Derived Compound

Table of Contents

In recent months, a synthetic compound derived from hemp called THC-O acetate has quickly gained popularity among Americans who don’t have access to legal cannabis.

THC-O’s appeal lies in its potency and its legal status. Research shows that it is roughly three times stronger than conventional THC. THC-O is a hemp-derived product that is more psychoactive and euphoric than Delta 9 THC (aka marijuana).

Herban Bud is the only vendor on the market with 100% pure THC-O distillate. You will feel the effects with just one hit.

Is it Safe?

Every other THC-O vendor on the market is cutting their distillate with either Delta 8 or CBD to make it thicker. As an industry pioneer, Herban Bud only produces 100% THC-O vape carts thanks to our proprietary cartridge design.

A lack of research and regulation has made data based on THC-O acetate are prevalent. Beyond its potency, researchers have concluded that THC-O is considered a “prodrug,” meaning that the compound is not activated until fully metabolized. It can take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes to feel the effects typically.

If you choose to consume low-quality extract material that you buy off of an untrustworthy site, you are more likely to receive a product that is less pure than you are guaranteed to receive from Herban Bud’s THC-O distillate.

What’s inside THC-O carts?

With almost any vape cartridge sold outside of a state-licensed cannabis system, there is always worry when it comes to potentially toxic additives being mixed in. These types of thinning agents have caused serious health problems in the past. 

There is nothing preventing upregulated companies from adding these ingredients without informing consumers. When purchasing THC-O distillate, you want to be sure that you are investing in a pure product that is free from harmful additives and thickeners.

Is it really Legal?

Well… it depends on who you ask. Producers of THC-O acetate products say that they are produced under the farm bill passed by Congress in 2018 because the molecule was derived from a chain of custody that began with federally legal hemp plants.

Some experts, however, believe the compound is not legal. They cite the 1986 Federal Analogue Act, which states that any substance analogous to a Schedule I drug – in this case, conventional THC – would itself qualify as a Schedule I drug. But this argument could be similarly used to argue against the legality of delta 8 THC, or perhaps even CBD. 

100% THC-O Distillate Products

Not only is THC-O smoother, but you will also notice a stronger and longer-lasting effect than Delta 8, Delta 9 or Delta 10. Herban Bud’s THCO distillate vape carts are made from 100% pure distillate and cannabis-derived terpenes giving you the best effects.

There are 6 different strains available within sativa, indica, and hybrid groups.
